  1. Guess Spidey really IS far from home now...

  2. I'm almost finished with the first palace in P5. But, er... I'm cutting it close to the deadline.

    Is that gonna be bad in the long run?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Yes, you always want to aim to finish palaces as early as possible, as you're then allowed to use the following free days to build your stats and confidants. You want to aim to finish the palace in about 1-2 trips, 3 max, at least for the early palaces.

    2. NegaMetallix


      Crap. Guess I'd better restart then.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer



      I wouldn't now. If you're almost done, just keep going and finish it. It isn't a massive deal on the first palace, but you definitely want to do it on Palace 2 and 3 as they have bigger deadlines but still are relatively simple to finish in a few trips.

    4. NegaMetallix


      I dunno. I feel like I've made little-to-no progress on anything outside of the palace, not helped by the fact that I'm literally on the very last possible days before the deadline.

      Even if I finish the palace and beat the boss, I'm gonna be left with the smallest possible free time available until the second palace appears.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      *shrug* Up to you I guess.

    6. NegaMetallix


      I'll give it some thought at least. I'm likely underestimating the sheer length of the game in total, so it's possible that there's nothing for me to worry about in the long run, so long as I don't screw up with the other palaces.

      (...And there's New Game + too, so...)

      Please never forget that you don’t have to play the game in a specific way. I played Persona 5 blind, and it made my experience feel all the more personal.

  3. Gonna start playing Persona 5 today. Anyone got some helpful tips I should know about before I begin?

    1. DiamondX


      During the game you can spend time with "Confidants". However, what the game doesn't warn you about (IIRC) is that for some you will need to increase your stats.

      There are 5 stats for the main character:

      -Guts (increases when you take on the Big Bang Challenge or by studying in the library)

      -Knowledge (increases when studying or correctly answering questions in class)

      -Kindness (increases when buying nutrients for your plant)

      -Proficiency (increases at the Batting Cages or when you craft items in your room)

      -Charm (increases from going to the Bathhouse)

       These can also prove to be beneficial outside of Confidants (Knowledge allows you to try answering again during an exam, Proficiency allows you to craft more items).


      Something more important is learning how to handle your free time as most missions have a deadline. After doing an activity outside of shopping evening will start where you are no longer able to progress with your mission. Make sure to get to the final part of a mission at worst 3 days before the deadline since 2 extra days are required to finish it.


      There is more but these are the most important thing in my opinion. Have fun with the game.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      Feed your plant as often as you can to level up your Kindness social stat faster.

    3. DiamondX


      @Polkadi~☆ I literally keep forgetting to do it and I'm almost done with the game and all my stats are maxed or almost maxed while my Kindness is barely at 2 or 3.

    4. NegaMetallix


      Thanks for the advice!

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      You won’t be able to get all your confidants at the start because of stat requirements, and this will be dealt with in NG+ as stats carry.

      That said you want to focus on the following in the first run - 

      -Sojiro - has one of the best storylines, and doing his quests allow you to create coffees and curry to take into dungeons to refresh your SP for Persona specials. It’s one of the most effective ways to restore it outside of leaving, so absolutely worth it.

      -Tae - Tae is the local doctor in the free clinic near Le Blanc and is where Joker will be buying healing items. Doing her confidant gives you bigger discounts and adds more potent items for buying, helping in the long run.

      -Futaba - Not only does she also have a great storyline, but she’s different from the other thieves as she acts as your navigator after the fourth palace. You want her skills ASAP as she’s able to upgrade and buff your party mid game, automatically reveal the randomised map in Momentos, and other useful things. 

      -Kawakami - She’s one of the best bar none, not only due to her storyline, but her abilities is damn near essential. She will be able to excuse you from class on random days, allowing you to take the time to stat build, and more importantly - she can give Joker a massage later in her confidant quests that allows him to perform two tasks at night, as opposed to one, meaning you can use it for more confidants or stat building. She can also make Sojiro’s coffee for you if you’ve finished his quests, and wash items found in palaces. She’s basically a massive time saver.

      -Chihaya - She’s one of the late confidants But one of the best, I made the mistake of not finishing her quests, but I’ve read if you finish her quests up, she’ll allow you to get temporary boosts to your gains, including finishing other confidants quicker.

      -You generally want to get some levels with all of your Phanton Thieves crew. The reason being is doing so will get you some random bonuses, such as them randomly doing an extra turn and stunning an enemy, being able to Baton Pass to other allies when an enemy is stunned and more.

      Whenever you hang out with a confidant, try to have a persona of the same arcana as them in your inventory as often as possible in order to rank them up quicker

      Remember: whenever you see UP!!! next to a confidant that means they will rank up when you see them

      Use the thieves alliance during class when getting asked a question so you can always answer correctly and increase knowledge (or don't if you think its cheating)

      turn on english subs in the menu, even if you're playing with english audio

    7. NegaMetallix


      Cheers! Making notes now.

  4. So I got some new games today; traded in CTR and a couple others for Pokémon Emerald and Persona 5. Should keep me busy for a while.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Now you too can be introduced to best Persona 5 girl

    2. NegaMetallix


      Ah yes. I can finally get myself aquatinted with... that one.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Yes, that one.

  5. It's nice to see that they're not only continuing to introduce regional forms, but also expand on the concept with exclusive evolutions for those forms.

    The only issue I had with Alolan forms was that, even with the new types/abilities/etc. not all of them were useful later on in the game. With new evolutions like Obstagoon, though, hopefully that won't be the case this time.

  6. *sigh*

    Seems like whenever something good happens in our home, things always find a way to ruin that good mood almost immediately. I'm absolutely sick of it...

    1. Failinhearts


      Yikes, that really sucks.

      Hope whatever happens resolves itself.

    2. NegaMetallix


      Thanks. I just wish these issues could stay resolved for more than a day, for once.

    3. tailsBOOM!


      Hope your situation improves man.

  7. Just had an all-you-can-eat meal with the family to celebrate my brother's birthday a couple days ago.

    I'm soooooo stuffed...

  8. Man, I hate losing GSP in Smash sometimes. It's like it just says "Hey, this character you think you're good as? You SUCK as them!"

    1. tailsBOOM!


      It was a stupid inclusion, because people act like you're only good if you have a good GSP yet people cheese their way into Elite Smash

    2. NegaMetallix


      I've still yet to see Elite Smash pop up. Any time I'm even remotely close to reaching the requirements, I lose one match and BOOM! There goes nearly half of that character's GSP!

      I miss the Smash 4 options...

    3. tailsBOOM!


      @NegaMetallix Me too.  That's why I don't do Quickplay anymore.  The last time I remember doing it was when I was trying to beat the Challenges.

    4. NegaMetallix


      Funny you mention that, as I've literally just finished the last challenge on the online board.

      I should probably use battle arenas more often.

  9. Just finished watching Hobbs & Shaw.

    I'd say the film's definitely stupid, but in a good way. A fun popcorn flick from start to finish.

  10. Off to go see Hobbs & Shaw with my brother for his birthday!

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Tell your brother happy birthday from me!

  11. So... about to go to bed, until I hear loud squeaking downstairs. I check to see what the heck's going on, and find my kittens chasing a frog around the house!

    Guess I'm really Livin' in Paradise now...

    1. Failinhearts


      Sonic is real.

      This is proof.

    2. Blueknight V2.0

      Blueknight V2.0

      Does the kittens happen to be called Big & Blaze and the frog Froggy? XD.

    3. NegaMetallix


      Nah, the kittens all have different names. (Besides, what would I call the third one?)

      ...The frog might as well be Froggy, though.

  12. > Playing online tourney

    > Gets successfully Thwack'd by Hero at around 20% damage


  13. *looks at new game releases*

    ...Wait, there's a Kill la Kill fighting game? By ArcSys?!

    Why is this the first time I've heard of this?!

    1. Menace2Society


      I probably wouldn’t bother with it. It’s not very good, apparently

    2. Strickerx5


      Because they only talk about the damn thing once every 5 months or so.

    3. Wraith


      It's really bad

    4. TCB


      because licensed anime games that doesn't have dragon ball in its title rarely get remotely half the promo-


      oh it sucks? nevermind then

    5. NegaMetallix


      Sounds like I'm not missing out on anything, then. I played the demo and it seemed... alright, but not worth the price it's listed at.

    6. NegaMetallix


      Hmm. Looking into it further, it seems the main points of criticism are the lack of content and simplistic gameplay, which are especially glaring considering the game's price.

      As a fan of the anime, I may give it another look if it ever goes down in price (like, WAY down). Otherwise, I'll pass.

  14. Hmm, Persona 5's on sale at the moment. I've wanted to get the game for some time now, but with the Royal version coming out next year, I dunno if it's worth getting right now...

    1. Failinhearts


      Best to wait for Royal.

    2. NegaMetallix


      I suppose. Then again, I'm curious to see for myself the differences between the original and Royal versions, something I feel may be easier to do if I've played both.

      Plus... well, waiting until sometime next year just to play an updated version (not to mention at a premium price) is something that I'm not entirely sure I have the patience for.

      Honestly, there's pros and cons either way, hence why I'm so conflicted...

  15. *sees Final Splatfest results*

    Yeeess! YEEEESSS!!

  16. Oh, right! The final Splatfest has begun!

    Welp, I know what I'm doing this weekend...

  17. Gotta be honest. With the built-in controllers, proper d-pad and reduced size... I kinda want a Switch Lite now.

    It helps that I basically never use the docked mode nowadays too.

  18. Saw Spider-Man Far From Home. I though it was great fun, and a pretty good end for Marvel's Phase 3.

    Dunno what Marvel films I'll be seeing after today, though. Guess it'll just come down to whether I like what I see from previews and such.

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      I feel like both Endgame and Far from Home, like the marketing has done,  closed a chapter of a long saga. I dont feel like I can invest in keeping up with a new saga.

      Yes I want to see how the final movie in the Guardians of the Galaxy ends cuz I like the Guardians, I like Thor so I would take another sequel, I want to see Black Widow in her solo film, I want to see what Dr. Strange is up to, and want to see what happens with spidey. But other than that  I'm not expecting the next team up movie or honestly i dont care for the eternals or Shang Chi.

      I am interested in watching the Disney+ shows though

  19. That's enough Adventure Mode for today. Time to try out some online races.

  20. So just out of curiosity, is the rematch with Nitrous Oxide after collecting the Time Relics any harder? Or is it just the same?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer
    2. NegaMetallix


      Ah, good to know. Thanks!

  21. First thought when I started Adventure Mode in CTR Nitro Fueled:

    "...The heck is up with Uka Uka's voice in this game?"

  22. Had a fun day out today! Managed to grab both CTR and Spyro on PS4 at a decent price, my brother got the entire Kingdom Hearts series (Story So Far & KH3) and then we both went to see Toy Story 4, which was very enjoyable.

  23. Me reading the statuses right now:


    1. tailsBOOM!


      Me neither

  24. Hmm, really don't know whether to get CTR on PS4 or Switch...

    1. SupahBerry


      It seems the Switch version has more damning loading times.

    2. NegaMetallix


      That makes sense. Still, it seems a fair amount of people here are buying the Switch version, not to mention my brother's getting that version too.

      But then there's also a few others who are getting the PS4 version, so it's a tough choice for me.

    3. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      I'd advise the Switch version, especially for SSMB game nights.

  25. Godzilla 2 was bloody awesome!

    ...Well, at least when the monsters were front and centre (which was a lot, to be fair). The human characters weren't all that interesting to me.

    Still worth the watch!
